I got new pup as a present for my birthday a couple of months back. It was just a week old then. It is certainly can be a lot of fun, but there are some things about new puppies that need to be taken care of almost right away. For that I thought of giving training to my pup on my own. Another reason for I decided to train my dog is my neighbor’s dog. It was well trained and trained by my neighbor himself. So, I bought a book on how to train it. There were many acts given to be done by the pup and me. Potty training was one of them. It was more like training for me rather than the pup.
During the training my pup never acted according what was told in the book. Potty training a new dog can be a bit trying at most of the times which needs patience from your side and attention from your pup side.
What I learned during the training course is – If you are not experienced in training a dog, having a good trainer at your side is one of the best things that you can do for yourself. So look for obedience classes in your area and see how good of a dog you can actually have.
